Review

I bought my car brand new and it has been in the shop 5 times to be fixed. The heater core and radiator were changed a few months after I bought it because the heater was blowing freezing cold air out of the passenger side. The repair shop told me it was because when they put the sealant on the car when it was built they used too much and it went into the radiator and through the cooling/heating system. Obviously that was not true and It is now again blowing freezing cold air on the passenger side. This is horrible. It is 5 degrees outside here and I cannot even get my car warm to get my son to school and me to work. This really needs to be addressed and fixed by DODGE, not the car owner. I have seen 100's of complaints on this issue with the same car. I am at a point where I really just want a different car because something keeps happening with this car. The electrical system had to be replaced due to faulty issues, wipers didn't work properly they would go on by themselves, then they would not work at all. In the winter time when I start the car it sounds like there is something screaming under the hood. There is a clicking noise in the car when it is hot outside and the repair shop cannot find anything wrong? The breaks had to be replaced right after I got the car because they squealed when in reverse. I had to take the car back a few weeks after they changed the breaks because of the squealing because guess what, they started squealing again. I was told it is normal because of the new break pads they use on Dodge vehicles. They said there is a coating on the pads that make them ALL squeal. That is NOT TRUE.

Review

I've owned this car since 2013, purchased with 32k miles. It is now 78k miles and have no serious problems. It is reliable, but there are a lot of problems.
*I could almost outrun this car until it hits 4500rpm. It is super-slow. Lead brick with wheels slow.
*Electronics have a lot of issues.
*Transmission is absolutely awful. It doesn't know what gear to get into. Stomp the gas and you can almost see the engine say '???????'
*It says curb weight is ~3400 lbs, but it feels much larger and heavier.
*Very harsh, rough ride. For a suspension this tight, it needs to be more powerful.
